Frequently has the name of Coach Curtis Pulliam of Villa Grove been mentioned In prep athletics of Illinois, and year after year be has done work In basketball that has called for due acclaim. This season his boys lost in the 'Douglas county tournament by only a xhort margin and they lost the Okaw Valley champlonbhtp by the *aine narrow bit. However, they sailed through the Charleston district tournament, took the championship and now they meet Taylorvllle In Pana sectional. To freshen In the mind alj* a of the past records of Villa tJrove, Twisters will quote from a. letter which he has just received from a member of the 1923, state championship championship team ot Villa Grove. 'Coach Pulliam has been at Villa Grove four years and In these four years he has won tho district tournament three years, one sectional tournament, tournament, one state tournament and county tournament two years. Villa Grove had only two veterans at start of this year, but nevertheless made a fine record." to bix bit.s F. In 1?23 Villa. Groie downed vllle In its first game of tho sectional tournament. This IB the year since IMS that either Villa or Taylorvllle has won a district tournament and now they are paired again, with the prospect of an battle.
